The Flame Haired Solstice Dreamer

Cold winter brings the Everfrost and jewels every tree
In a forest new as birth and old as old can be
A flame~haired dreamer wanders there and shelters from the wind
And spins her dreams around the trees to break the ties that bind
She takes her thread and spins anew and how the Greenwood smiles
As she spins a spell for freedom and for her spirit Wylde

The dreamer finds an ancient oak and shelters in his lee
In a forest new as birth and old as old can be
Tis summer now and birdsong weaves its magick through her spells
And humming bees drum drowsily in the foxglove's bells
The dreamer sits beneath the oak with yarn upon her knee
And spins and knits and weaves her dreams and sets her spirit free

"When birds fall from the sky and the animals are dying, a new tribe of people...shall come unto the earth from many colors, classes, creeds, who by their actions and deeds shall make the earth green again. they will be known as the warriors of the Rainbow"

Hopi Prophecy

~solstice blessings~

*~*sending solstice blessings to you all across mother earth*~*

i was up for the sunrise this morning after preparing my fledgling sacred space in our garden last night.

as i stepped out of our back door the only sound i could hear was the fist birds and the humming of bumblebee's on an early morning hunt in the flowers of our garden~then the first flush of pink tinted the clouds.

there was nothing elaborate, i sat in peace, watching the clouds drifting by with glimpses of blue between them, the birds sang, a drift of jackdaws flew over to sit in the oak and the bee's hummed away, still gathering busily.

so the wheel stops and then starts its turning again and the holly takes the mantle from the oak and we slowly start our drift towards our next festival~lughnasadh and the start of the harvest

All things share the same breath~the beast, the tree, the man, the air shares its spirit with all the life it supports.
